    Hank, I have not spent nearly as much attention to the nautical part of the war as I should and I find what you noted to be very interesting indeed. Thanks,

      Hank,

      I have not spent nearly as much attention to the nautical part of the war as I should and I find what you noted to be very interesting indeed.

      Thanks,

      Wasn't the Cincinnati rammed?

      A couple of interesting sidenotes regarding ironclads:

      The turret overhead is open for ventilation, covered with well spaced
      railroad iron and subject to plunging fire,

      The hull is sheathed to only a few feet below the fully-loaded
      waterline. As the boat fires it's ammo (about a ton an hour) it rides
      higher in the water, exposing more of the unarmored hull to fire and
      ram.

        Pat,

        No problem. I just thought it interesting how it all works, or doesn’t work. 

        Now get that groom married off.

        Tom,

         

        For reasons unknown to me, some of your posts are getting hung up in a SPAM folder for CWWT.  It's not until I check and clear that folder that the posts go through.  Sorry, I've been pretty pre-occupied with my son's wedding.  I know, weak excuse to ignore the Civil War, even in the western theater.  I've already been told that a time or ten.  ;) 

         

        Best regards from the Mother of the Groom.

         

        Pat

        after noting that Winschel Winschel "has made frequent appearances on
        the History Channel" I finally found a picture of him and have to say
        I seem to miss his appearances there. About a million years ago, back
        when Book TV was friendly to Civil War books, I can remember him being
        on some of those programs and he was quite good. I can see why he is
        liked for round table programs.

        One of the chapters seems to be about a sunk gunboat, the CINCINATTI,
        I am going to have to refresh my memory on what that's about.

        BTW his picture is at
